    Hey guys, what's up?

    These times, I shamefully deserted W3 modding to develop a program related to one of my favorite games (if not THE one) : Final Fantasy IX.

    It's a tool that reads the emulated version of FF9 and allows to modify part of the game. I have no idea up to what I will go, but it can edit spells, enemies, shops, dialogs and a bit commands for now. You may also export the changes in PPF format to share your mod (that's a psx patch format readed by programs such as ePSXe and ppf-o-matic).

    There are still bugs/features not working, but I try to make them as harmless as possible when I know them. However, there is at least one you should be aware of : you shouldn't "export as ppf" a change if the file in your hard disk isn't the original FF9 binary file (if you overwritted it with Hades Workshop, for example).
    To make it clear : export as ppf creates a patch that upgrades the version on your hard disk to the version with the changes you made. That's why it should be the original version.

    Here is the download link :
    Hades Workshop
    There is also the source code available (though it is poorly coded in many ways ^^' it's C++ coded with IDE Codelite+wxFormBuilder and GUI wxWidgets libraries).


    Any comment would be appreciated. Have fun ^^

    PS. : I was not sure whether I should post it here or in the "Game development" section. I guess this is the safest place... Sorry if I were wrong.
